Please post this to the listserv.  This seems like it would be a great

  Outdoor Wildlife Leadership School Workshop for Educators

Next month we have a great opportunity for educators to learn more about
Georgiaís wildlife and natural resources.  The Outdoor Wildlife Leadership
School (OWLS) is will be held at Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center July 15-19.
We still have space available.  *To make a great workshop even better,
there is no cost to the workshop!** * Due to several grants from The
Environmental Resource Network (T. E. R. N.) and the Georgia Natural
Resources Foundation, all room, board and program fees are covered.  In
fact, once educators use the material with their students, they will
receive a $100 stipend for attending the workshop and using the material.

 OWLS is a workshop focused on wildlife conservation for K-12 and nonformal
educators.  If you are interested in learning about environmental education
through hands-on activities, have ever thought about adding more
experiential learning to your classroom or are looking for a fun way to
earn Professional Learning Units; OWLS is for you.

Participants will spend five days immersed in Georgia wildlife education
via activities and day trips including birding in Piedmont National
Wildlife Refuge, canoeing in Bond Swamp, and exploring bogs at Ohoopee
Dunes. Also, spend time learning basic conservation biology concepts and
field techniques that can be used with students in and out of the
classroom. Finally, if you arenít already Project WILD and Aquatic WILD
certified, participants will be trained as Project WILD Facilitators and
given curriculum guides.

The cost of the program is absolutely free and covers all room and board
and program fees.  The workshop will be July 15 - 19, 2013. All
participants will receive three Professional Learning Units to assist in
maintaining their teaching certificate. For more information, please
contact Rusty Garrison at (770) 784-3059.  Or register by completing
